What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Let's Have A Peek At You

I admit it, I don't know much about Pikachu. I'm a grown man, darnit! So when I watch cartoons, there better be turtles who eat pizza and use nun-chucks, is what I'm saying.

Also ponies. Big fan of ponies.

Still, even I know Pikachu is an adorable yellow... thing... that kinda looks like this:

Only with less mold.


Or like this:

"Kiiiiill killkillkillkill..."

Only with less homicidal eye-glinting.


You know what? Here. This is what Pikachu looks like:


And with such a handy reference, I'm sure your baker will have NO PROBLEM... er...

Never mind.

The Dino Days Of "Bummer"


And this three is the number thou shalt bake.
(It is a nice three; I like the cake board especially.)


Now.... GO!

I mean, NOOOO!

Ok, enough Monty Python references.


Now on to the Firefly ones!

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal, bakers.



If you find yourself in need a gender reveal cake next Thanksgiving, then here's a cute option:

As a hardcore pun-lover, I'm digging how both "waddle" AND "wattle" could work here. (In fact, "wattle" would be better. Just sayin'.) Plus the blue and pink tail is fun.


But you know what's NOT fun?

When you ask a baker for that, and instead...

...get this.

Sad as that turkey is, I'm most outraged by the pun botchery. This is like the cake version of that relative who comments "I don't get it" on all your Facebook memes. "IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THE DOG CAN'T SPELL, Aunt Claire. And looks surprised. See, it's a funny dog who can't spell and is surprised and OH NEVER MIND."


Thanks to Amber B., Maria W., & Shannon D. for the poultry in motion.
